So i shall begin from Sunday...
Awoke to no water...pretty standard weekly thing nowadays so no biggie, and up for chocolate spread on bread, our fav....all ready for a big day in our classrooms....PTC...AKA Parent, teacher consultations....in Nepalese! Fun fun fun....so for me, most turned up on time (not Nepalese time)...Rose doesn't agree! So it all began splendidly...in Nepalese...at lunch, we both had had only one consultation that was in english, but both agree how strange it is that even though we had very little understanding of what was going on, we laughed when they laughed and nodded with understanding....so weird!!!! As a result, they either thought that we spoke Nepalese and were both very shy, or were complete idiots!!
Sunday night...the first christmas film previewed on HBO....'Four Christmases' lovely jubbly....Bikash stayed late, and we had a lovely chat...we skyped Linda with him, she gave him the tour of the house and Bikash was in awe of her beauty...he then went on to propose to me....but not properly as Rose would say....he didn't get down on one knee...so she taught him how to do it, and we haven't seen him since...however, when i was on skype he was very funny to Rose and said to her when she was speaking 'i wish i had a fast forward button'! How woooooode!! Had a super long chat to the supervisor Security Guard who invited us to his house, and then went on to comment on the belly...'you are big for a 20 year old'! Its honestly like the film 'the invention of lying' its like they HAVE to tell the truth! So Mr Security Guard invited us out at 4am for a run and press-ups with him...we politely declined and i promised him that i would work harder at the yoga and eat less pies!!! Oh and Rose got a phone call...Mr Supervisor came upstairs and kept saying 'Don White' over and over again and 'Megan Dyos'...we knew that he actually meant Rose, but he kept also repeating Australia...so we knew who it was! All very exciting and Rose spoke to Donald, Rosie, Tobes and Rach....VERY exciting.
Monday, standard day, Rose recieved some lovely biscuits from some children in her class...they were good! She is loved! After snack Suzanne took a yoga session in the penthouse...she gave us some unimaginable poses, not sure that they were quite beginners poses, but we managed without splitting our differences thank goodness! Another christmas film on HBO and the Christmas Tree is up!!! Its officially christmas here!!!
Tuesday (today) MAJOR gossip...there is a new Security Guard!!! We talked to the other ones and asked his name...they had no idea and suggested that we call him number 5...so thats who he is! Rose is doing amazingly with the Ucas application for uni...coming along splendidly! And a VERY VERY funny thing happened to Rose...yesterday she did Sophie Bourge a Moonpig card, but couldn't send it due to forgetting the address, so she put in a made up address and put in her bank details....today she has the real address, but found out that she actually pressed send yesterday and the card has gone to the made up address!!! Not funny, sorry Rose! We have done our christmas shopping for some people here...Toblerones (very like home we thought!) and a big bag of sweets for our lovely lovely protectors (the securiy guards!) Just done our yoga sess to some bangin beats, played basketball with Robin (other IT guy) and all set for another christmas film!
We are getting VERY excited about our holiday...and we hopefully have a contact at one of the hotels in Chitwan....hopefully! One of Rose's parents gave her his card and told her to contact him, so of course we have and are really hoping for a free night in a five star hotel...we are all for the positive thinking!!
Thats all for now folks...see you on Christmas Eve.
